  • It’s alright. My parents have a row of it in a garden, so I’ve had a good amount (the garden has been around for years). It’s not something I particularly enjoy, but fried okra is pretty good. There are a good amount of “southern food” places around here too that have it as side dishes.

      Cool, I recall that shit stings a little bit, like the stalks and leaves just chew your arms up when you pick it.

    • 13 d ago

      Yessss if you pick them fresh, they can be prickly, kinda like cucumbers. You can get a towel and roll/rub off the hairs if they bother you though. My hands are sort of calloused from various things, but I wear gloves if it starts bothering me

  • Yes, it's good as a variety of vegetable. They come in a can alongside the other vegetables in our local grocery store.

  • I’ve never had it although I’ve been told it’s an acquired taste. In the past with other “acquired tastes” I’ve never liked them! I’d try it but I don’t want to buy it and dislike it

      It’s got a distinctive flavor yes. I liked it as a kid right off the bat so I wouldn’t really describe it as an acquired taste. And I’m talking about fried okra.

      Kind of a sulfury flavor , tastes like it smells. Kind of a musky sulfury... I don’t know what you’d call it in the uk but in Japan we’d call it an umame flavor. Kind of an earthy flavor like mushrooms or seaweed

    • 12 d ago

      I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t like it lol. I’m not a fan of that smell but regardless, I eat mushrooms if I have to and I hate seaweed 😂.
      Nothing personal; I just find seaweed salty and if it’s crispy very chewy, and if it’s microwaved/pan fried it’s so slimy. I grew up on a very low sodium diet so I tend to be quite “sensitive” to salt... for me mushrooms very rarely add to a dish. It’s just a slippery lump in my dinner :/ I like them in sweet chilli sauce though!

  • It might taste good if you mix it with the right foods but when I eat it - I don't like the taste.

  • As long as they are young, soft and small. If they get too big you can cut them. If you don't use them right away after you cut them they become slimy. If I am going to eat them I prefer breaded and fried.

  • I like okra but only really use it when I'm making gumbo. Its a traditional ingredient in the creole dish and helps to thicken its consistency.

      Oh I didn’t know that was one of the reasons why... I guess the thick slimy stuff?

    • 8 d ago

      yup. If you saute it in a frying pan for a few minutes first, it becomes less slimy and easier to work with.

  • I grew up around it but I never tried it. It didn't look good to me.

      I assumed, I try not to be a grammar/spelling nazi cuz I’m the worst at typos and autocorrect but I just wanted to make sure what people mean.

      Don’t mess with the canned stuff. The ranch 99 in Seattle has it and they have frozen ones too. I’ve never tried the frozen ones. Stick with fresh if they’ve got it
